What is the need for a compression garment after surgery?

After a cosmetic surgery, or any surgery for that matter, your body will react to your incisions as if it were trauma. Your body will send signals regarding the “trauma” and your natural defense is to swell. The compression garments keep the swelling to a minimum and helps relieve some pain and bruising.

The garment must be worn at all times immediately following the surgery. It will help minimize excessive swelling, reduce bruising as well as the development of seromas and fluid. Not wearing the garment may lead to undesirable results after a cosmetic such as a tummy tuck or liposuction procedure.
